Compulsive shopping, also known as shopping addiction, is probably the most socially acceptable form of addiction. We’re constantly bombarded by advertising messages that tell us to buy certain products so we can be happier, healthier or better looking. Politicians also encourage consumers to spend money to support the economy. And, there is the appeal of wanting what everyone else has.
But there’s a difference between spending money and compulsive shopping. Like other behavioral addictions, shopping addiction can take over your life and cause you to neglect your other responsibilities.
